### Thanks for the support!

But then - why is it bad to discard unneeded embryos?

It's useful to think your way through the situation, even if you have only
a personal feeling rather than a fleshed out ethical theory. The problem
with feelings is that they have consequences, and if you feel it's just
wrong to discard embryos then you would have to support a ban on in vitro
fertilization in general, thus depriving literally millions of people of
the chance to have children.
